Tsunami Surfers

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

It was quite a surprise to wake up to a Tsunami warning.  Fortunately it came to nothing and it was surf as usual. There were a few onlookers in the morning, as the 4ft swell came in. By midday it seemed that everyone was just interested in getting waves. The Quiksilver Pro was called off […]

Good Ole Days

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Mind-blowing fun on Friday afternoon for all who had the right tools for the occasion – gotta love 1-2ft peelers when you got a good plank under foot. The water was ridiculously warm & clear. Hope you were able to wash off the stress of the week or just get out n enjoy the waves […]

Sea Turtle

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

The swell was big enough to get into the Bay today & the winds were just right to hold up the face a little n keep it smooth. The waves were only about 2 foot on the sets, but the water was clear n warm & there were a few sea turtles swimming around. Great […]

Green Retreat

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

What a beautiful day – cloudless skies, light winds & amazingly warm water. It’s so good to be spending your day finding waves or a nice green beach retreat. The swell has dropped back since yesterday to about 2-3ft on the open beaches. The northerlies have been light, but making the northern corners the pick […]

The Breaka @ Burleigh

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

It was an epic day at the beach, especially when seated in front of the world’s top surfers as they battled it out at Burleigh Heads for the World Qualifying Series Breaka competition. A lot of the big names like Fanning, Andy, Taj, Bede, Ace, Deano, Kersy, Flores, Jay Bottle Thompson, Owen Wright & Dustin […]

Dancing on Water

Friday, February 19th, 2010

There were some waves today = they might have been worth dancing for. More of that south east swell has arrived, getting up to a solid 6 foot on the open beaches. Plenty of beefy ones hitting some of the points today & being enjoyed by a lot of happy surfers. Looks like it’s going […]

Hands Up

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

If you were lucky enough to find yaself at a north facing beach around here you would have gotten some nice off shore goodness. The swell seems to be sticking around. It was about 3ft on the sets in the Bay this afternoon. Hope you enjoyed the day. Levi

Surfing Evolution

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

Watching the grommets walking down the headland today reminded me of the evolution of surfing. It’s not just about the amazing new tricks, innovative materials, but is now backed by major companies & their surf teams have full film crews, high performance coaches & promotional experts. Good or Bad, this is where surfing in many […]

No Bull

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Like lightening on a cloudless day – the Red Bull Junior Team appear, destroy & vanish. Man do these guys rip! The waves were tiny, but there phenomenal ability was mind-blowing. The waves were about 1-2 foot & the wind north east, with quite a bit of east in it. There was a punchy bank […]

The Board Riders

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

Something nice there up in the corner this morning. The winds were light and from the northwest early, and the morning high tide made it a bit tricky, but there were some reasonable rides out there. The Byron Team were hard at it & getting some nice scoring waves. Hope you got in, bit fresh […]

Shiny Blue Bay

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Today was a real sunshiny day – the winds were off shore for the first few hours & then tended to the south east for most of the rest of the day. The swell is down to about 3ft on the open beaches, but still had a little bit of push behind it. Get in […]

Diversified

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

It was an interesting day of surfing today. The winds were east for the middle of the day, with some early morning westerlies and easing off again in the evening. The swell is from the north still, but settling, around about 5ft on the open beaches. It was great to get into some smooth, walling […]

Concrete Slabs

Monday, February 1st, 2010

It seems that the Pass is quite a popular place for surfing – but then again how could ya resist when there’s solid slabs on offer and the strong easterlies are making a mess of the open beaches. The French surf team were out for a some of what the Bay had to offer too. […]
